Hi,

Is there a version of Linux that comes with wine preinstalled?

Don't know. But what's the problem with installing it yourself? It should be a matter of opening your package manager and clicking a couple of buttons. Wine is not usually considered part of any base system, so I guess it won't come on the default installation set unless you explictly select it when installing.

If you get one of the distros that come on a dvd - say Fedora, Suse, Mandriva - there is a good chance that it will be on the disc. In most cases, you still need to indicate explicitly that it needs to be installed, though.
